Froggmomma - I'm glad you liked the R2-D2 and CP3-O.  It's made from some black shrinky dinks that I got years ago at Goodwill.  I can never get the stuff to be completely flat.  I almost didn't even put it in the package because it was wonky. Smiley

I'm so glad you did send it.

I'm lovin' all stuff everyone is getting. That tree tote,  the kitty note cards, and the felt tree are awesome.

The doggie pillow, took me a little time to figure out, but I'm not a quilter. After that it was super simple.  I've been playing around with the idea of making a froggy one in the same style. Just need to dig out some green fabric scraps.

He asked, and I said yes.
I'm looking for Home Interiors resin butterflies, and License plates from other states. PM me for swap info. I love to swap.

So here are pics of my great package from kayrun!
First, a couple of really nice knitted wash clothes. I love the colors!

And some wonderful yoga socks! I absolutely love the wool and the color of these too. I wore these last night during my practice and they felt great. I've been having some foot problems the last couple of months (my poor pinkie toe bones are going crooked) and it's been hard to stand barefoot. Well, these socks provided extra cushion under my arch which seemed to take away some of the strain on my little toes. SO, for the first time in months I was able to do yoga with NO foot pain- and for that kayrun I can't thank you enough!!

Oh, I want those yoga socks!   I want a pair for my yoga-loving daughter and a pair for her non-yoga loving Mom.  I just think they would be super comfy.

Those yoga socks look so warm and comfy!

I know a few of you have asked for feedback, unfortunately the feedback form isn't working for me right now, I get a nice message telling me to log in as the organiser of the swap. To which I am like 'I am?!' Have sent a helpdesk message so hopefully it will be sorted soon, so apologies for the delay!

Received, Received, Received - a package of such loveliness, that I'm still smiling about it now!!!  It came at the end of last week - but to a few emergencies (like 13 hours wtih no electricity) and parentals 50th wedding anniversary only just posting pics now - sorry Beki, but I LOVE everything!!!

Firstly - I have a total thing for Flamingo's - and check this out ...

SO awesome - my daughter has already tried to snaffle this for herself and been given a firm no!

I love the marvellous Heston Blumenthall - and Beki put together a recipe book of some of his stuff.  Despite the fact I have several of his books, I don't have any of the recipes you included - and I'm SOOO going to try that popping candy cake!!

Some lovely fabric and sequins and sparkles from Beki's stash

And a cute and wonderful bracelet with cakes, goodies and knives and forks on it - you must have tiny fingers Beki cos I don't think I could ever make anything on such a small scale as that - but seriously love it!!!

And finally - I'm afraid I can't post a pic of my favourite thing - the most amazing and fabulous lighthouse cross stitch.  It's just wonderful (I have a total thing for lighthouses as well as flamingos) and I'm in absolute awe of your cross stitching abilities Beki.  I took it to Mum and Dads to show them at the weekend - and Mum is framing it for me as she has a lovely silver frame the perfect size.  I'm really sorry - should have it back by Weds and will post a pic then - or if you have a pic Beki please do post it, cos it's absolutely fab and I love it!!!!!!

Thank you for being a great swap partner and a wonderful organiser - have really enjoyed this swap.
